Poet-playwright Ntozake Shange's "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow is Enuf" is a cornerstone of contemporary American theater. In it, seven women of color share their stories and find strength in each other through "a layin' on of hands." This innovative theater piece is composed of 21 poems, linked by music and dance. The women dance out and declare their everyday joys, hurts and loves. Praxis Stage takes on this Obie-winning, Tony-nominated play at Hibernian Hall in Roxbury.
Composed of 21 poems, linked by dance and music, and delivered by seven women, “For Colored Girls…” combines choreography and original contemporary music with the original score that features 1960s and 1970s R&B and jazz.
Directed by Dayenne C.B. Walters, the production will run at Roxbury’s Hibernian Hall for 12 performances. February 15-25.
